The weather
A constant state of being.

In 60 days, I'll be in San Antonio, Texas, having the time of my life. It's going to be an intense and incredibly relaxing week all simultaneously. I purchased my plane ticket today and it made me rather giddy for a short period of time. It's something that I've been excited about for a while now, but securing the trip just makes it even more real. I'm fairly certain, despite being happy for me, my coworker was getting tired of hearing me talk about the trip. He's only had to listen to my antics for ever now. But that's what friends are for.

I am finally on the tail end of this ridiculous cold that I swear was trying to kill my faith in my immune system's awesomeness that it once had. It's going to take a while for me to build my trust back up with it. I still have to blow my nose a bunch of times each day and my throat is still a little sore. I woke up from my nap earlier choking on a dry spot so that was fun ... I can't wait for that to be done and over with so that I can be back to normal.

My coworker and I went to the dog park on Friday. It was the pup's first time at the dog park and he did fairly well. We were only there for an hour or so. I was still feeling under the weather so I didn't do a whole lot of running around. My friend did, though. Him and his girlfriend took their dog back to the park again yesterday and ran him for a solid couple hours, which wore him the hell out. With it having been so nice here lately, it's nearly perfect weather for going out to the park. Hopefully the next time I go back with them, I'll have recovered fully and am able to run around with them.

Work yesterday pretty much sucked, but that was mostly because I closed. I'm not used to closing on a Saturday so I felt like I was rushed when I got home, since I had to be up for work this morning. The next two Saturday's, though, I'm off early enough that I can have time to relax a bit before going to bed.

My friend and I went to see The Lego Movie this afternoon. It was pretty damn funny. I wasn't expecting the twist to the story, which I guess is the point, but still. We had some time to kill in between the time we got to the mall and the start of the movie so we wandered around. We bought some more stuff at Victoria's Secret. They were having a deal on undies and perfume so I got some of each. With the instant discounts and the $15 gift card that I had, I got out of there with 7 pairs of undies and a bottle of body mist for less than $20. It was pretty awesome. We walked over to Target so that I could buy a couple more bras. For once, they were stocked on the kind I like so I was able to buy more variety. Who knew that a front hook bra would be so comfortable?

All in all it was a rather pleasant weekend. I don't get any face time with my man tonight, but it's probably for the best. He'd not be happy to find out that after staying on later than we should have last night, again, I slept through my alarm ... again. I really, really need to work on self control, but when I'm talking with him, time just evaporates. The distance really does suck sometimes, but it forces us to connect in other ways and it makes things stay at a steady pace. Which I definitely appreciate right now.

Anywho, I guess that's it for now. The Tylenol is starting to kick in and I should probably take advantage of the fact that I can be in bed before 11.

Now what?
Thursday. 3.20.14 7:43 pm
I haven't missed this much work from being sick in a really long time ... it seriously sucks. My next paycheck from each of my jobs is going to be all kinds of messed up. The check from the regular job won't be short at all because I have sick time, but the one from Sam's will only have 4 hours on one week. Oh well. I needed to stay home and recuperate.

However, this recuperation only seems to be taking tiny steps. Once one thing improves, something else starts bothering me. At this point in time, it's my damn throat. I'm almost 100% positive that it's sore from the nasal drip, but it wasn't sore this whole time! Go figure that it would wait until I started feeling better in every other aspect before it hit. Now I'll probably lose my voice. I'll be feeling better, but I can't express it. Fantastic.

Also, my right ear won't pop. Another issue I have yet to experience until just today. Ugh!

Luckily, despite the fact that tomorrow is payday, I really don't have any errands to run. I have two bills to pay, both of which will take all of 30 seconds each to submit. One of which I can do from my phone. Glasses not even needed. I will have to get quarters at some point before the bank closes. I also have to pay for a wrap that I got today and I need to drop something off at work that was mistakenly mailed to me. Other than that, I will be lounging at home, seriously hoping that I get better soon.

Regardless of how I feel {unless I'm dying, of course} I will be working my 8 hour shift at Sam's on Saturday. I will have to get up in the morning to do laundry beforehand, but I'll still be able to sleep in until 8. Then back to my regular schedule on Sunday.

I have tentative plans for tomorrow afternoon, but they may not happen. Whether on my account or theirs, I'll have to wait and see what happens. My fingers are tightly crossed that I don't feel like shit tomorrow. I've gone from wanting to cut my nose off to wanting to rip my throat out. I'll say it again, just for emphasis. . . {there's no 'ugh' smilie, so that'll have to suffice.}

Wait, there it... and it's gone again
Tuesday. 3.18.14 11:09 am
I've reached the point in my sickness that I can blow my nose and breathe clearly through both sides of my nose for all of about 30 seconds before one side decides it's not ready to enjoy airflow yet. Damnit. At least there's that much of an improvement. My nose and the part of my face around my nose is still ridiculously raw from blowing it so much. Whenever I walk around, I'm simply waiting for the Rudolph the Red Nose reindeer comments to commence. My sense of smell has also yet to return, so that's fantastic. {<~~ sarcasm ... if you couldn't catch that.}

This ailment has caused me to miss more work than I ever have when I've been sick. I'm usually really good about toughing through it. Hell, the week before my vacation, I worked both jobs 4 days a week all through having a cold. I don't think I missed a single day during that time. It sucked ass, yes, but I still didn't feel shitty enough to miss work. It's stupid how much this cold has knocked me on my ass. I missed work Saturday, Sunday, and today. Only reason I didn't miss yesterday is because I didn't wake up early enough to call off without risking getting written up. I should have taken the write up. My boss is the one who told me to call off for today, which I did at noon yesterday. There was already someone to cover the shift so it wasn't too much of a big deal.

I went out to the store last night, after coming home and zonking out with the help of more Tylenol, and purchased some soup, mac'n'cheese, Spaghettios and some juices with a bunch of vitamins in them. I'm currently drinking Bolthouse Farms Multi-V Goodness which has so much stuff in it. It's got 100% of 12 daily vitamins per serving {so I'm getting double the amount since I'm drinking the whole bottle} along with 32% of your daily fiber. I also have a Naked drink packed with like 2000% vitamin C that I'll be drinking a little later. I'm still taking Mucinex during the day and the Tylenol at night so hopefully by the weekend I'll be better.

I completely forgot about the Oil of Oregano trick until yesterday, but that's something you can only find at Whole Foods and I really didn't feel like driving downtown. Perhaps once I'm feeling better and I find myself near a Whole Foods store again, I'll grab a bottle.

I have to go to work tonight because I'm pretty sure if I call off sick from there again, I'll lose my job. I've already done so 4 times since I've started working there and being a part-timer, it doesn't really reflect well. Then as soon as I get home tonight I'll be taking the Tylenol and crashing out because I need to work both jobs tomorrow. It kind of makes me sad because I'll miss seeing my favorite face on Skype, but I really need to not stay up late tonight. It can be made up for Thursday night, since tomorrow night I'll be coming home and crashing again.

Only 4 shifts to get through, two part time, two full time. I can handle that right? I also hope that I'm better by the weekend since I'm supposed to be hanging out with people again on Friday. Fingers crossed.

Thank you immune system
Saturday. 3.15.14 5:11 pm
Over the last week or so, I've been staying up later than I should be simply because I don't want to get off Skype with the guy I'm very quickly connecting with. As a result, my sleep patterns have been off and I'm getting even less than what I normally get, which is far less than the recommended in order to stay healthy.

So my immune system decided to say fuck you and I'm pretty damn sick today. I actually have a low-grade fever. I'm achy and I keep getting chills. My nose is raw from blowing it so much. My throat keeps getting dried out, which makes me feel like I'm choking and thus resulting in my eyes welling up and my breathing all a mess.

I called off from work today and I will most likely call off from work tomorrow, despite the fact that the security job is a lot easier to do when sick than the cashier job, but if I can't shake this fever, I'm in no shape to be working. Especially if I can't sleep due to feeling like I'm choking every time I lay down.

So thank you, immune system, for putting me back in my place in a rather rude way. Effective, yes, but still still rude. Oversleeping through my alarm and being late for work once would have sufficed. I am learning my lesson, however, and I'll be making sure that my Skype dates end before 11, instead of 12:30.

The gift
Wednesday. 3.5.14 9:52 pm
I apparently have this unique gift that most people seem to lack. I have the ability to be able to find someone's car in a very short period of time. If I ever go anywhere, regardless if it's my car or not, I'm usually able to remember where it was left. Now, my accuracy isn't quite 100%, but it's pretty darn close.

It has definitely come in handy over the last couple years with people forgetting where they parked their vehicle in our incredibly confusing garage. Even with the other officer is in that building, they'll call me to help because then it might only take 10-20 minutes instead of half an hour or more.

It is kinda nice feeling appreciated.

Challenges and accomplishments
Friday. 2.28.14 3:07 pm
Today is the first off day in a good long while where I haven't had any errands to run. The only plan was to hermit it up and pretty much be lazy the whole day. Thus far, that's exactly what I've done.

I slept in until around 8, took an early shower {I usually shower later in the day} and have been hanging out in pajamas the whole day. I cleaned a little bit of my room. The corner looks slightly less cluttered. There's still a bunch of crap over there, but it's a little more organized. I also finally changed out the tapers and put plugs in. They're so much more comfortable than the tapers. My ears still have some healing to do, but now that I have plugs in, the healing process should speed up. I don't have to worry about them falling out or being pushed out.

Now, to explain the challenge for today. It's 58 degrees outside, sunny with not a single cloud to be seen in the sky. It's pretty much the perfect early spring weather and it's making it very difficult for me to want to continue staying inside. I have no idea what I would do if I were to actually go out, but seeing as how my funds are currently limited until Friday, not much can be done even if I were to go out. It's beautiful outside, though. I guess 3 years is long enough for me to finally start appreciating the beauty of a warm, sunny day. I guess there's parks I can go to. I do still have my bus pass, so that I can save on gas, but the idea of getting on a bus is actually kind of helping convince me to stay inside ...

Anywho, not much else to write about. The 3D puzzle that I've been working on over the last couple weeks is finally complete. It's pretty awesome. If you're on my Facebook, I posted pictures. It took 3 tries before I got it completed. The damn thing kept falling apart on me. It was a great challenge though and I can't wait till the next one. I think I'll buy the castle next. Maybe in May when I go to Barnes and Noble for the book I want to get.
